Motorized Door Lock
The motorized door lock assembly is located above the oven.
The assembly consists of a lock motor cam and switch assembly,
lock hook, heat barrier, and mounting plate.
Access to this assembly, for single and upper ovens, is behind the control panel.
For lower ovens, access is behind the trim cover between the 2 ovens.
Motorized Door Lock Operation
The lock motor is energized when the control is set for Clean and Clean Time selected.
The K1 relay contact will close and complete the circuit that supplies the voltage to the lock motor.
Note: The display of the Control will flash LOCK DOOR if the door switch is in the C to NC position
The words LOCKED DOOR will flash on and off in the display while the lock motor is in motion.
When the door is locked the words LOCKED DOOR remains illuminated in the display.
The cam on the motor performs two functions:
1. Positions the lock hook in the door to prevent opening during Clean operation.
2. Operates the lock switches that tell the control if the door is unlocked or locked and ready for Clean operation.
Note: When door is either being locked or unlocked, both lock switches will be in the open position.

Thanks for the advice but I'm not quite sure what it all means. Do I need to replace my door lock?
Means you dust off the ol' meter, dig out the wiring diagram for the microwave (inside the control compartment) and get down and nasty wif dat bad boy. We can point you in the right direction but you'll need to troubleshoot. Sublime Master Reg narrowed it down for you. Now, you may ax, "Wherefore art those switches of which thou speakest with golden tongue, O most Sublime One?" or, "Pray tell thine unworthy servant, O Exahalted One, which motor dost thou refer me to?"
Can I hear an, "Amen?"
